Abstract The introductory chapters of this work describe the physics of sound, personal protection against noise, technical measures for the reduction of noise and the vocabulary of technical acoustics. The main body of the text is devoted to noise measurement methods and to technical measures of noise control with practical examples: sound isolation, silencers, noise screens. A computer program used int he solution of noise control problems (involving acoustics and noise toporaphy in factories) is reporduced in full. Explanations are given of the mechanisms by which noise is produced and of possible ways to reduce noise at source.
